The property

A charming detached cottage located in the scattered hamlet of Pleasant Stile, just half a mile from Littledean and 1.5 miles from Newnham and the River Severn.

Beyond this to the right is the well-equipped kitchen with modern appliances, where the chef of the party can prepare a tasty meal.

The sitting room with dining area can be accessed both from the kitchen and hallway and houses a woodburning stove, ideal for those chilly evenings.

Stairs from the hall lead to the three first floor bedrooms, with the twin boasting original beams, and completing the property is a bathroom.

The back door of the cottage leads to a private enclosed garden complete with furniture and barbecue.

The utility room is also accessed from the patio area and provides a space for washing and drying outdoor clothing.

Nearby, Littledean offers amenities such as a village shop, Post Office and two traditional pubs, as well as Crime Through Time in Littledean Jail and Quadrophenia Collection.

Also close by is the riverside town of Newnham, which boasts a larger range of amenities, and the Forest of Dean has many outdoor activities.

About the location


Newnham-on-Severn 1.5 miles; Gloucester 14.5 miles.

The little hamlet of Pleasant Stile is very well situated, just one and a half miles from the thriving village of Newnham, and less than 15 miles from the lovely city of Gloucester. Perched on the side of Littledean Hill, with stunning views across the meanders of the River Severn to the Cotswolds, Pleasant Stile is less than a mile from Littledean, which has a shop, Post Office and two pubs. Newnham-on-Severn has more amenities, individual shops and traditional inns. Close by is the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, while fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Just a short drive away, in the historic waterfront city of Gloucester, you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and a spectacular Norman Cathedral (whose cloisters were used as a location in the Harry Potter films). Visit the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, with timbered Tudor houses and excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, in the heart of rural Herefordshire. The Severn Estuary, famous for its tidal bore, is a delight for bird watchers, wildlife enthusiasts and bore surfers alike. This unspoilt area has something to offer at any time of the year.
